Purple Lake

 

 

I'll swim in purple lakes with you forever.

I'll be glad for the landscape,

I'll swallow the ultraviolet.

 

I'll dream of you every night,

Under those purple lights,

I'll embrace the lost journey.

 

Can we meet?

Down by that purple lake,

I'll be the greatest love for you to hate.

 

Forget purple, 

We can paint it pink,

Forget pink,

We can paint it any colour you like,

I'll do anything for you if you take me down to that lake.

 

You are that purple wire that runs through me,

I need to keep typing because I never get to speak of you like this,

And it hurts because you should have been more.

 

I offered to change the colour of my lake for you.

Bring me home my love.

Let's go back to White and find that guy who found you pretty,

Please let me show you off again.

 

Let's find a purple lake,

Even if we spend the rest of our lives searching.

In between is so much better than being on the outside.

    I agree with Yumna, that last line was great. This write had a magical feel to it - especially that purple lake. Nicely written.
